Gibson's was named one of the best steakhouses in America by Travel+Leisure magazine.
Chicagoans love the high-low meat scene in town.
Of course we can argue the merits of the hotdog. But new emporiums to inflict the "meat sweats" opening at an exponential rate, Chicago knows their cuts of meat.
Travel + Leisure magazine cited two local steakhouses worthy to make their "Best Steakhouses in America" list. The list highlights 32 U.S. restaurants dedicated to all the cow -- from New York to Cincinnati and all points in between.
The writers cite the evolution happening in the steakhouse domain. And Chicago steak lovers have both choices -- the old-school temple to the Porterhouse (Gibson's) to the new restaurant with an inventive menus and chic decor (David Burke's Primehouse.)
T+L describes Gibson's as an "iconic meat palace" teeming with sports stars and politicos hankering for the 48-oz porterhouse -- complete with a lobster tail and martini.
Diners curious about dry aging can tour David Burke's Primehouse to see their in-house Himalayan salt-lined drying cave before a dinner of Kobe corn dogs and a prime cut of meat.
